Molecular detection is currently a part of clinical oncology diagnostics. The recent grow of advanced molecular technologies enables for a certain number of cases to optimize the treatment by incorporating individual, molecular DNA-characteristics of the tumor and of the patient himself: the so-called ‘Targeted Next-Generation-Sequencing (NGS).
The introduction of NGS in molecular oncology diagnostics requires a profound preparatory phase, both in the field and on policy level. A feasibility study, performed by the Cancer center (WIV-ISP) and the KCE, resulted in a roadbook ‘...
For a number of diseases/disorders, personalized treatment today offers a great added value compared to classical, empirical therapy. Thanks to molecular diagnostics, specific aberrations can be detected, which are an indication for a correct diagnosis and prognosis and the successful use of a corresponding drug in order to target the disease.
Currently the reimbursement of personalized medicines is not coupled with that of the accompanying biomarker which often leads to a delay in reimbursement of the predictive tests as compared to the personalized medicine. To better align...
